And if so where is it now?This is a story about the intense emotions that great art can provoke passions that sometimes verge on the irrational and which transcend considerations of value John Snare's conviction about the painting he bought evolved into a dispute with those who had money power and influence In a sense the missing Velasquez became a battleground for class war and the individual against the establishment But at the heart of the story lies a work of art created with such skill and delicacy that it inspired the fiercest of feelings and continues to exert its mysterious pull to this dayEpisode 1 An auction bargain ignites a humble bookseller with a
